Police are investigating an armed robbery Wednesday at a bank branch located inside the Hy-Vee grocery store in Milan they say resembles other recent bank robberies in the area.
Milan Police Chief Mark Beckwith released details on the suspect: He is white, in his 20s, approximately 5-feet, 10-inches tall, weighs 220 to 240 pounds, has blond or light-brown hair and was wearing a tan or khaki hat, maroon or dark red hoodie and sunglasses. The suspect also was clean shaven.
The suspect robbed the American Bank and Trust inside the Hy-Vee store at 201 10th Ave. W. shortly after noon.
Beckwith said the suspect walked in and handed the teller a note implying he had a weapon.
“It’s the same pattern as the other two robberies,” Beckwith said, referring to bank robberies inside Hy-Vee stores in Moline and Bettendorf.
Moline police are still looking for a man who robbed the Wells Fargo Bank inside the Hy-Vee Food Store at 4218 Avenue of the Cities on Aug. 20.
Police described that suspect as being about 25 years old, 5-feet 8-inches to 5-feet 10-inches tall and weighing 200 to 220 pounds, according to a news release from Moline police. He was wearing an orange T-shirt with a dark-colored long-sleeve shirt underneath, blue jeans, a fake beard, black sunglasses and an orange hat.
Bettendorf police also are looking for a man who they say robbed the Valley Bank branch in the Hy-Vee store at Devils Glen Road on Sept. 14.
Police are looking for a man in his 20s or early 30s, approximately 5-foot-10, with strawberry blond stubble facial hair and with a gap in his front teeth, police said. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a gray shirt over a long-sleeved black shirt with collar, a maroon cap and sunglasses.
